• Jeffrey Wright did not recognize Colin Farrell on the set of "The Batman"
  • Some Twitter users did not like Robert Pattinson's "emo" look in trailer
  • "The Batman" will resume production in September

Jeffrey Wright admitted that just like the viewers who watched "The Batman" trailer, he also didn't recognize Colin Farrell on the set of the film when the actor transformed into his character, The Penguin.

Farrell's look was trending when the first trailer for "The Batman" was released because he was unrecognizable in it. Wright was also as shocked as the fans when he saw Farrell for the first time in his Penguin look.

"Colin walked on to set one day and I walked right passed him," Wright said with a laugh on SiriusXM's "The Jess Cagle Show" as quoted by People.

"I was like, ‘Okay, hey dude what’s happening? Where’s Colin? Are we going to shoot?’ It was, it’s pretty remarkable."

Prior to Wright's revelations, several Twitter users were making noise on the micro-blogging site after watching the trailer. They knew Farrell's character but did not anticipate his unrecognizable look. However, many approved of his appearance as The Penguin.

"I can’t believe this is Colin Farrell as Penguin. He’s unrecognizable lol," @jdamis wrote.

"Wait is Twitter messing with me or is this really Colin Farrell as Penguin in the Batman trailer? If so this is one of the best transformation makeups I've ever seen?" John Squires commented.

"IKR? i personally love this penguin, Riddler looks amazing too, I mean people were skeptical with some of the actors like Jeffrey Wright as Gordon but he looks like the 2nd best gordon ever (Gary Oldman will always be the best)," another added.

While many approved of Farrell and Wright's appearance in the teaser clip, several did not like Robert Pattinson’s “emo” look. In the trailer, the “Twilight” actor rocked dark eyeliner and a very serious demeanor.

"Now this Batman looks like he's got personal issues," one commented on the trailer.

"So we’re bringing back the emo phase? Batman and emo doesn’t fit well with me," another wrote on Twitter.

Director Matt Reeves explained that Pattinson was portraying a grittier character. In the movie, he was still figuring out what he can do and at the time, he was not a symbol of hope yet. He was still dealing with the public's perception of him.

"The Batman" has three months of material left to shoot. The cast will resume production in September, according to an insider.
